Subject Re: submitting jobs from a webapp
Date Mon, 31 Jan 2011 17:49:07 GMT
(moving this to the user mailing list where it belongs)

You need to make sure that your webapp knows the address of the
JobTracker, usually this is done by either putting mapred-site.xml on
your app's classpath or you can set mapred.job.tracker correctly so
that in createSubmittableJob you would have:

conf.set("mapred.job.tracker", "whatever the address is:and the port");

Else it will run in local mode.
